Cisco's Internet of Things Push
Over the past year, Cisco has been polishing its Internet of Things offerings in an array of vertical markets – including the manufacturing, transportation and energy sectors.
Moving forward, the company will continue to focus on these segments by building out its channel strategy, both through its traditional IT solution providers, but also with a new channel specializing in operational technology.

Following are excerpts from CRN's conversation with Trollope about Cisco's channel strategy as it relates to the Internet of Things.
